Most of us have a limited understanding of the powerful role economics has played in shaping human civilization. This makes economic history - the study of how civilizations structured their environments to provide food, shelter, and material goods - a vital lens through which to think about how we arrived at our present, globalized moment. Designed to fill a long-empty gap in how we think about modern history, these 48 lectures are a comprehensive journey through more than 600 years of economic history.

Very informative and it provides a comprehensive snapshot of the history of the world economy. I would've liked to hear more of what was happening in Latin America because this region was pretty much left out of the lectures.
